Shambe Nature Reserve

Yirol, South Sudan

First gazetted way back in the mid-1980s, the Shambe National Park can be seen as the southern extension of the aforementioned Ez Zeraf Reserve.

That makes it home to an important part of the White Nile River ecosystem; a place of curious oxbow lakes and pop-up flood plains.

Animal wise, you’ll get all of the biodiversity of the larger park to the north, along with lions and hippos, wild foxes and swinging primates of different kinds, not to mention elephants by the hundred! Shambe Nature Reserve is also a designated birding area, made popular thanks to countless migratory species that pass this way throughout the year.
